Iconic home wares retailer Habitat wanted their new and existing stores to reflect their demanding commitment to innovative design.

Together with Antarchitecture, we worked on eight Habitat stores during the build-up to Habitat’s 40th Anniversary. Habitat wanted its stores to “provide an environment in which customers can find new ideas, in which their interest is constantly renewed and in which they can enjoy themselves.” We worked on stores throughout the UK at Regent St, Tottenham Court Road, Thurrock, Belfast, Glagow, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Solihull.

Our involvement included the construction of new lightweight retail floors that appeared to be floating, staircases that invite the customer to explore new areas, balustrading that subtly divided different spaces of activity and facades which encouraged customers into the store.
